Check out a sneak peek from Season 3 PLUS the official bios of the new castmembers below:
Attorney Phaedra Parks
Phaedra is a celebrated entertainment attorney who lives in the historic Vinings area. She is the Managing Partner of The Parks Group, P.C., an Atlanta based boutique law firm that caters nationally to entertainers and athletes. She has served as a legal analyst for NBC and Fox News, and has been featured on Entertainment Tonight, EXTRA, Court TV, among others for her handling of several high-profile clients and cases. An active member of the community, Phaedra, self-proclaimed “Southern Bell,” sits on numerous boards and is involved is multiple charities.
A friend of Dwight and Kandi’s, Phaedra arrives on the Housewives scene under scrutiny. Phaedra’s marriage to her younger husband, Apollo, is the subject of much gossip because he did a stint in prison for a “white collar crime.” She is expecting her first child with Apollo and has thrown herself into planning the perfect baby shower.
Glamorous Cynthia resides in Atlanta with her 10-year old daughter, Noelle. The Alabama-born beauty moved to New York City 18 years ago to pursue her dream of modeling with nothing more that a high school Homecoming Queen crown and a few beauty pageants under her belt. Her very first booking was the cover of Essence, but that was only the beginning. From major fashion features to the runways in Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks and from staring in a movie opposite Sandra Bernhardt to a guest role on The Cosby Show, Cynthia has had an enviable career path.
Cynthia joins the Housewives at a pivotal time in her relationship with her boyfriend of three years, Peter Thomas. He has issued her an ultimatum, and though Cynthia has always been independent and financially comfortable, she must come to terms with her marriage hang-ups or risk losing him for good. Already a close friend of NeNe’s, their friendship deepens as together they struggle through relationship issues with the men in their lives.
This season should be awesome. Not only do we have two new additions but also lots of drama and more “gay” husbands have been given additional screen time as well.
The show premieres October 4th at 9pm…. who’s watching??
